On a day that thankfully gave me an opportunity to catch up on my sleep, I had an appointment with Peter Harvey, who now has the Fallan & Harvey name on the shingle at Davies & Sons on Savile Row.
I dropped off a jacket for a collar adjustment and picked up another, a brown 14 ounce (420 gram) Shetland herringbone with blue and gold overchecks that I am unlikely to wear before next November. Usually I try to have clothes for the start of the season but that did not work this time.
More importantly, Peter had my brown tweed suit ready for forward fitting. The cloth, by Lovat Mill, is a 15 ounce (450 gram) glen check with a maroon overcheck that when complete will be a three button single breasted jacket with a double breasted waistcoat. It will be my second suit in this style and we have cloth set aside for a third, a gray from Smith's 15 ounce Whole Fleece book, next year.
In between the brown tweed and the gray worsted will come a sage green covert coat with a sage velvet collar that will hopefully be ready in October.
